If the distance between two charges is suddenly quadrupled, what happens to the electrostatic force between these charges? Not sure on this any suggestions? Thanks

Use the Coulomb for the electrostatic force between two charges.
Notice that it is an inverse-square law. What does this say about the force when the distance is doubled?
